Structural Biology Using Electrons and X-rays is the perfect book to provide advanced undergraduates or graduate students with an accessible introduction to the two major diffraction-based techniques of structural biology. While concentrating on electron cryo-microscopy with image analysis, it also includes X-ray crystallography in a coherent survey of fundamental principles. Starting with Fourier transforms and progressing through optics and imaging principles, symmetry and three-dimensional reconstruction theory, Structural Biology Using Electrons and X-rays ends in an account of the latest methods adapted to crystals, helices, viral heads, and single particles.

  • Emphasis on common principles underlying all diffraction-based methods
  • Thorough grounding in theory requires understanding of only simple algebra
  • Visual representations and explanations of challenging content
  • Mathematical detail offered in short-course form to parallel the text
